Today, LDF and a broad coalition of civil rights organizations sent a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on House Administration expressing opposition to the Americans Confidence in Elections Act (ACE Act). Rather than furthering the goal of ensuring all Americans have the freedom to vote, the ACE Act would be a substantial step backward and nationalize harmful and unnecessary restrictions on voting rights. The bill would also roll back many of Washington, D.C.’s current pro-voter laws. Instead of proceeding with this legislation, Congress should take actions that will help voters and promote democracy such as passing legislation that will strengthen protections against discrimination in voting and expand access to the ballot for all communities.
